Texas man called ‘pillar of community’ fatally shot by police officer


Quote:
A Texas man hailed as a “pillar of the community” was fatally shot by a police officer as he tried to break up a fight, according to local reports.

Jonathan Price, 31, intervened when he saw a man and a woman brawling outside a gas station Saturday night in Wolfe City, about 65 miles northeast of Dallas, witnesses told ABC affiliate WFAA-TV.

Family members and friends told the outlet that the man assaulted Price, and when officers responded to a report of the disturbance, a cop tased then shot the good Samaritan.

Authorities on Sunday said the cop involved was placed on administrative leave pending an investigation from the Texas Rangers, but did not release details about the shooting.

A former athlete, Price was employed by the city and also worked as a fitness trainer, relatives and friends said.

“Everybody loved Jonathan. Everybody. Black, white, Mexican, it don’t matter,” his sister, April Louis, told the outlet.

Price’s mother, Marcella Louis, said she wasn’t surprised to hear that her son would step in to stop a fight.

“That’s what he always did, tried to help others. I taught him that all the years,” Louis said.

A witness who was in a store across the street when shots rang out recognized the victim as Price, calling him a “pillar of the community.”

“We all love him and think so highly of him and just the nicest guy you could ever meet,” Kyla Sanders told the TV-station.

Philadelphia-based civil rights lawyer Lee Merritt said he is working with the family to “get justice” for Price, calling him “a hometown hero.”

“Motivational speaker, trainer, professional athlete and community advocate— he was dearly loved by so many,” Merritt wrote on Facebook.

“He noticed a man assaulting a woman and he intervened,” Merritt continued. “When police arrived, I’m told, he raised his hands and attempted to explain what was going on.”

The attorney claimed: “Police fired tasers at him and when his body convulsed from the electrical current, they ‘perceived a threat’ and shot him to death.”

The family will be holding a vigil for Price on Monday evening.

Astonishing. I think she lacks the Christmas spirit--and basic human decency.

Attacks on Black D.C. churches by Proud Boys leave community shaken, but ready to fight back


Quote:
When the Proud Boys attacked African American churches in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 12 at the culmination of that day’s “March for Trump”—tearing down banners and signs reading Black Lives Matter, and either destroying them outright or parading them through the street and then setting them aflame—it sent shock waves through the Black community, and not just in the nation’s capital.

“For me it was reminiscent of cross burnings,” commented the pastor of one of the victimized churches, Asbury United Methodist. So it was for many Americans who could remember all too well the nation’s history of burned-down and bombed churches during the long struggle for Black civil rights.


Moya Harris, a pastor at another church that came under attack—Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal—penned a piece for Sojourners contemplating the feelings that the attacks conjured up for people who experienced a more sublimated form of white supremacism daily:

White woman’s confrontation with Black teen under investigation


Quote:
A confrontation in which a man said a woman tackled his 14-year-old Black son in a New York City hotel lobby as she falsely accused the teen of stealing her phone is under investigation, city prosecutors confirmed on Monday.

Keyon Harrold, a prominent jazz trumpeter, posted a widely viewed video of the confrontation on Saturday at the Arlo Hotel. He said the unidentified woman scratched him and tackled and grabbed his son, Keyon Harrold Jr, at the lower Manhattan hotel where the pair were staying.


“He’s the sweetest, most genuine kid you could ask for,” Harrold said in an interview Monday evening. “I was just appalled at how he was treated.”

The video shows an agitated woman demanding her phone be returned while a hotel manager tries to settle the situation. At one point, the woman appeared to rush forward and said, “I’m not letting him walk away with my phone!”

Harrold said the phone was returned by an Uber driver shortly afterwards.

Watch Ossoff's glee at hijacking Fox News for a live campaign ad for himself and Warnock



Quote:
TDoocy, stupidly, just couldn't leave well enough alone, having just participated in cutting a television ad for Jon Ossoff live on Fox News. Nope—he continued, creating a huge opening for Ossoff to deliver the coup de grace on behalf of his co-Democratic campaigner, Rev. Raphael Warnock. "One more quick one while we've got you," Doocy says. "Any concern that the allegations of wrongdoing against Rev. Warnock could possibly be a drag on the Democratic ticket?"

"None whatsoever," Ossoff responded. "Here's the bottom line: Kelly Loeffler has been campaigning with a klansman. Kelly Loeffler has been campaigning with a klansman. And so she is stooping to these vicious personal attacks to distract from the fact that she's been campaigning with a former member of the Ku Klux Klan. I mean, we deserve better than that here in Georgia." That's for sure. (In case you missed it, yes, Loeffler posed with not just any klansman at a campaign rally, but with Chester Doles, a former KKK leader who runs the white supremacist American Patriots USA.)

another right winger gets caught... what right wingers do behind your back when they think no one is looking...

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/security-cam-caught-ups-driver-s-racist-rant-as-he-declined-to-deliver-latino-man-s-christmas-package/ar-BB1cwmMp?ocid=msedgntp


Security cam caught UPS driver’s racist rant as he declined to deliver Latino man’s Christmas package


Quote:
Moments later, without ringing the doorbell or knocking, he began writing a failed delivery attempt notice and explained why Aviles, a Latino police officer, would not get his package.


“Now you don’t get f----- nothing cause you’re a stupid m---------- who can’t read and write and speak the f------ English language,” the man said in a Dec. 17 recording of the incident, which was captured by Aviles’s security camera and posted to social media.

On Tuesday, after activists in Milwaukee held a news conference urging the company to take action, UPS announced that the driver, whom the company did not name, has been fired.

“There is no place in any community for racism, bigotry or hate,” a spokesman with the company told NBC News. “This is very serious and we promptly took action, terminating the driver’s employment.”

“We just want to make sure that UPS is serious and wants to make amends with the Latino community,” Shirley Aviles, the man’s mother told The Washington Post in an interview late Tuesday.

Video of the Dec. 17 incident shows the unidentified UPS driver approaching Aviles’s front door at around 7 p.m. After his rant, the driver pasted the failed delivery note on the door, shaking his head in apparent disapproval.

Although the man did not explicitly name Aviles in his “racist remarks,” Shirley Aviles told The Post that she has no doubt the driver was referring to her son, whose name was printed on the box.

“He’s never met my son,” the 45-year-old mother said. “He’s basing it solely on the Latino surname. … He meant it. He sent it back. It was malicious.”

Hours later, Aviles, 23, who was home sleeping when the delivery man arrived and had been expecting the package containing a Christmas present, awoke to notifications from his Ring security camera. (Ring is an Amazon product. Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post.) That’s when he saw the recording of the driver’s remarks and shared it with his mother, who posted it to her social media.

The following day, through a relative who works at UPS, the company apologized and said they wanted to chat, Shirley Aviles said. She declined to talk until re-watching the video and organizing a list of demands.

The package finally arrived three days after Christmas, but only after her son had to call to follow up again, she said.

Then, for nearly three weeks, Aviles said the family heard nothing from UPS. On Tuesday, the Aviles family and local activists held a news conference demanding the driver be dismissed and urging the company to invest more in diversity training.

Darryl Morin, the president of Forward Latino, a nonprofit that aims to help Latinos pursue the American Dream, accused UPS of lacking interest in investigating the event or correcting the driver’s behavior.

“As such, this is no longer an issue of a single rogue driver, but one of UPS’s failure to commit to operational excellence and more importantly, UPS management’s failure to combat hate within their company,” Morin said at the news conference.

Hours later, the company called Morin to announce the driver had been dismissed last month, he told The Post.

Shirley Aviles said she hopes the video can become a “teaching opportunity” so others can avoid making assumptions about Latinos.

“It can’t be that somebody can make such an assumption just by looking at an individual’s surname,” she said. “I thought we were so past that. There are so many of us Latinos who were born here. It’s ridiculous to think that people who think we don’t speak English because of our last name still exist.”
